Outbreak Summary

OFT’s Food Safety and Injury Lawyers are investigating a new outbreak of Salmonella illnesses linked to a Don Julio Mexican restaurant in North Branch, Minnesota. OFT Law has been retained by an individual sickened in this outbreak, and we have filed a lawsuit on his behalf in Anoka County court.

The Plaintiff in the Salmonella lawsuit became seriously ill with a Salmonella infection after eating at a Don Julio Mexican Restaurant in North Branch, Minnesota. After seeking medical attention and testing positive for Salmonella, Minnesota public health officials interviewed him specifically about his dining at the Don Julio restaurant in North Branch, indicating that others have also been infected with Salmonella after dining there. The plaintiff is still sick and continues to test positive for the Salmonella outbreak strain. The suit names Don Julio, Inc., the company that owns and operates the restaurant, as the defendant.

Salmonella Outbreak linked to Don Julio Restaurant in North Branch, Minnesota

Salmonella Food Poisoning

There are more than 2,500 serotypes of Salmonella, but fewer than 100 cause infections in humans. Salmonella poisoning can be so severe that it requires people to be hospitalized. Salmonella can even be fatal when the infection leaves the intestines and travels to the bloodstream or other parts of the body. It is also possible to experience long-term side effects, including joint pain known as reactive arthritis, which is also known as Reiter’s Syndrome. This can last for months or years and result in chronic arthritis, which is difficult to treat. Reactive arthritis can also lead to eye irritation and painful urination. In rare cases, some types of Salmonella cause typhoid fever, which can be fatal.
